According to a source from 1326, Nyíregyháza had a church, which attributed to the second part of the name, egyház (which directly translates to ‘church’). During the middle of the 15th century, the town had approximately 400 residents. Then, in the 16th century, when the Turkish occupied Hungary, Nyíregyháza became wholly deserted. However, it was resettled in the 1630s–1640s.
